the untraining / reframing

Yoga teachers make a circle of hands

yoga mentoring program 2024-2025

with Sondra Loring and special guest teachers

September 2024 – January 2025: A five-month long program of rigorous study, exploring, redefining and refining the rich tapestry of yoga through a myriad of lenses.

I am excited to announce the Untraining/Reframing, a five-month long course of yoga study for dedicated folx who want to better understand the animated heart of yoga, through the deep exploration of history, philosophies, contemplative and ritual traditions, and enhance their own practices relevant to their own lives. Through reading and discussion of somatics, boundaries, trauma-sensitivity, updated yoga instruction, personal story, participants will expand their relationship with body, creativity, and community.

This course is for those who want to integrate yoga into their own work, which might include a new endeavor into teaching yoga, but not limited to that. It can be relevant for physical therapists, bodyworkers, artists, writers, community builders, as well as for personal development.

Please email me at to request a complete course outline.
